    I love my 10-20mm, would i prefer a 14mm prime? no.
    But that's my opinion, try the 14mm, see which suits your style best or which you prefer using, only you can really decide which lens you want, then if you make the wrong decision it's your own fault, good luck ;)

    No. The zoom is sharp enough. Other than lost flexibility, what would you gain from the prime? Unless you do a LOT of indoor group shots, I don't see the benefit of having the f/2.8 at such a wide angle.

    actually, i found out that the lens is full frame compatible. which is a benefit when I plan to upgrade from my D300
